According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, augmented reality (AR) is a great idea, according tomedia reports. The Cupertino-based technology giant has begun work on its upcoming AR smart glasses, but apple is clearly not the only company to bet on AR smart glasses. Samsung recently filed a patent to showcase the appearance of its future AR smart glasses. In fact, in addition to Apple and Samsung, a big company has also shown interest in releasing smart glasses, and it is Huawei, the Chinese tech giant.
China’s State Intellectual Property Office recently approved Huawei’s patent for AR smart glasses. The patented smart glass includes a spectacle lens body, camera assembly, telescopic assembly, rotating assembly and control system.
The most interesting part of this patented smart glass is its camera. The device uses a pop-up camera that functions the same as a smartphone’s pop-up camera. The camera used in the patented device can also rotate, and the best part is that it can be controlled by an app. When the user feels that the camera is not needed, the user can easily turn off the camera through the app.
However, since this is a patent, Huawei’s AR Smart Glass patent may never bring this amazing technology to market. So at least until Huawei officially announces it, let’s not rush.
